"America will be a country for all of us. Period."
Dorian Warren, president of Community Change
"Community Change” is both our name and a statement of our purpose. Our goal is to dramatically improve material conditions for people struggling to make ends meet in the United States, and we have a 15-year plan to do so. On the path ahead, our role is to fuse the power of organized people, bold ideas, and political clout — a three-dimensional power that we believe is the recipe for an economy and democracy where everyone can thrive.
Winning on the Issues
Community Change is committed to fighting for policies and practices that improve the material conditions of low-income communities right now--even as we work to change the structures and systems that perpetuate injustice.
We work with community-based partners across the country to lead these campaigns because we believe the people who are most marginalized by injustice should play a central role in defining solutions and strategies to implement them.Learn More
